Pro to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
"Direct recording electronic (DRE) machines utilize the power of information technology to address the shortcomings of older format voting systems. These systems are more portable, less susceptible to break down, feature context sensitive help capabilities, can be programmed in different languages and have multiple layers of redundancy. Other DRE advantages include ease of use, accuracy and reliability, accessibility, adaptability, and security."
